Hi Anshikasingh,

I don't remember seeing you before,  welcome to the forum :)

This is very easy

Take the base 2 number   10100111010110011111110000

Split it into groups of 4 from the right hand side,

10  1001  1101  0110  0111  1111  0000

in base 10 this would be a number between 0 and 15

In Hexidecimal it is a number between 0 and E

 base 2 10 1001 1101 0110 0111 1111 0000 base 10 2 1+8=9 1+4+8=13 2+4=6 1+2+4=7 15 (biggest possible) 0(smallest possible) base 16 2 9 D 6 7 E 0

\$\$10100111010110011111110000_2=\$\$  \$\$29D67E0_{16}\$\$

You would need to do more work to get the base 10 equivalent.
